. >> well, we saw a new barack obama yesterday on the campaign trail. i'm guessing we're going to see -- >> not new, the same as he's been all along. he just happened to lose that persona. >> different than the debate. >> he lost the persona in the debate. now he seems to have gone back to it. he does much better when he's out campaigning than he does in debates generally. that was the case previously. it seems to be the case now. he, too, needs to be more consistent in terms of how he looks to this electorate, and i presume we're going to see more of the campaigning obama than we saw in that debate, and at the same time he has got to tell a story here that sticks to numbers that are real. i think that if one party and one candidate can really stick to the real tale of where we are economically and how we move forward in this economy that is inhibited by what's happened in the great recession, that honesty might carry the campaign, but i don't think that pie in the sky is going to do it like we saw especially out of romney the other night. >> i agree with that, and i think it would ac
the stafford act to assist new orleans after katrina. 10 days before senator obama gave this speech, the federal government did in fact waive the stafford act for new orleans. and to add insult to injury, barack obama was one of 14 senators who voted against the bill that, included the provision to give supplemental emergency assistance to new orleans of he was being dishonest and divisive, which we have seen far too often from him in the last four years. former governor sarah palin is here. i am curious, i know he voted against the starveord act. but i am curious, that was part of a bill that had funding for iraq. that's why he was opposing the war in iraq. does that have any impact on your thoughts about this? >> yeah, it sure does. it makes me disrespect president obama, then candidate obama even more because he believed on principle that in order to defund our troops, the provision was in that legislation, included not releasing those katrina relief funds, it's a whole ball of wax. it's appalling, truly, in order to defund our troops, he took that stand to vote against it? then
a dozen times. that's also the message of a new ad on romney's tax plan from the obama campaign. >> why won't romney level with us about his tax plan which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? if we can't trust him here, how could we ever trust him here? >> the romney campaign has taken issue of course with what the obama campaign uses which is a tax policy center analysis. in that ad that draws on the -- to argue that mitt romney's tax plan depends on a $5 trillion tax cut that's not paid for. the conclusion they drew is the only way you offset those tax cuts over ten years, after handcuffing yourself on the pledges that romney has made to reduce tax rates across the board by 20% eliminating the alternative minimum tax and erasing the federal estate tax is to eliminate deductions that will inevitably touch the middle class. the romney folks say the obama campaign and tax policy center created a strawman. the problem is the romney campaign hasn't created their own and responded with any detail on how they would do it. it becomes impossible at least politically once you account for the
strongest year in its 40 year history. >>> time is 7:48, election news, president obama is on the campaign trail in virginia this morning. these are live pictures. this is jog mason university -- george mason university. the president did receive some good newseller this morning about the up employment rate. the rate fell to its lowest level since he took office. much needed boost for the obama campaign after wednesday's debate. the president will be speaking on that stage at george mason university shortly. we will check back and bring you the details. >>> republican presidential nom nominee mitt romney campaigning in virginia today. he talked about his controversial comments on the 47%. in this case i said something that's completely wrong. i absolutely believe however that my life has shown that i care about 100%. >> that video came out of mitt romney at a fundraiser in may saying almost half of the american people are victims and dependant on the government. mitt romney today will be at a coal country rally in southwest virginia, he is accused the obama administration of crushing the
be bad news for president obama. brian mooar has the latest. he's in washington. good morning. >> reporter: hi, lynn. even if it's not great news today, it probably could be worse. today's jobs report is the second to the last before election day. it is a critical snapshot of an economy that's been stuck in low gear. >> whatever the numbers are, the romney campaign is going to cite them as evidence that president obama's policies are failing. >> the president is trying to convince people he's doing real well. he is not. >> reporter: building on a momentum of wednesday night's debate, romney's trying to reverse his stance in battlegrounds like ohio where he's fallen behind. >> china has passed us in manufacturing. >> reporter: the president argues republicans are offering nothing new. >> it's not plan for our economy. it's not a plan to strengthen the middle class. it is not change. it is a relapse. we're not going to do it. >> reporter: the latest jobs report, cold, hard facts, certain to be the subject of heated debate. economists expected the economy added a less than stella
of disbelief and polarization where every time a new poll comes, whether it shows obama or romney up, i get people that say i don't believe those numbers. they're made up, and it's sad and something they have to deal with. >> it's not just the political media. let me tell you you something, john. that tweet it from mr. welch was retweeted not just by correspondents covering it. these are people on twitter, on facebook who somehow maybe are walking down the street and their neighbor says did you hearing what jack welch says, the numbers are cooked and that contributes to the toxic level where people have no confidence in anything. forget the polls because you can talk about sampling and whatnot. this is the economy. it's 114,000 jobs. it's not the goal number. let's be one of the 114,000 who didn't have a job last month, and now you have a check to put in the bank and maybe more food to put on the table and pay a couple of bills out there. those jobs count, john. >> this is a long-term trend in our culture, tamron. back from the 1960s collapse of respect for authority. we have the same accus
new tape they call president obama's other race speech. it shows just how desperate the right wing is. >> obama has just been subject to the fox news treatment of angry black man again. >> this speech was covered in 2007. it was aired last night on the conservative media, fox's sean hannity, "the daily caller" web site. >> carson called this a bomb shell but a little reality here. this tape is not new. it was an open press event recorded in its entirety in 2007 and many media outlets, including cnn, extensively covered it. >> is it that the liberal mainstream media does go berserk when president obama is held accountable for some of his speeches? vince, welcome. i want to get into the substance of it in a minute. what's the beef of all these liberal media people? why can't you or me or anybody else run some of obama's past speeches? >> well, i think there's one of two reasons. one, they're utterly embarrassed they missed it the first time and how could you? this is kind of amazing to meet, all these media outlets come forward, they say we had this, i was at the speech, i remember this
. but there was one good piece of advice, watch more fox news. >> where was obama tonight? he should watch -- well not just "hard paul" but watch you and reverend al and lawrence. he would learn something about this debate. there is a hot debate going on in the country. you know where it is being held? here on this network. that's where we are having the debate. we have our knives out. we go after the people and the facts. what was he doing tonight? >> bill, can he win back chris matthews? >> if you lost chris matthews, do you lose the south? >> no, you lose chris matthews. >> i would say -- first of all i kind of agree with that. they send athletes out weeks ahead of time if they are going to play because the change is so different. it did look like he had the air sucked out of him. he is the president. he can't be living in denver. >> he can show up early like romney did and then prepare. >> you don't need longer than a day. >> so they were both on equal footing. >> he is the president. he can't be in denver and the medicinal marming marg clinics. -- marijuana clinic. >> you know what bothers me

the country in that the unemployment rate went down and i would say good news politically for president obama because now the talking point that republicans have used effectively for quite some time to say, you know, 42 straight months of an unemployment over 8%, unemployment had been over 8% every month since barack obama took office, they no longer can say that. to your point it didn't drop to 4%, it's still 7.8%. i would say if you ask barack obama on the day he took office if he -- if he thought unemployment at 7.8% would be okay in the month before he needed to run for re-election, he would not be happy with that number, but it's about the trend line, the trend line suggests and again, one month is not determinative but suggests that perhaps things are the economy is strengthening a little bit. that's the argument obama needs. he needs data points to say it's not perfect, i know that, not everything i've done is perfect to fix it, but it's slowly but surely a lurching toward getting better. >> the republicans will focus on the slowly part of that, only 114,000 new jobs added, anemic by a
. the anchor of fox news sunday, chris wall has, joins us. if you are running the obama campaign and you can only pick one do you pick today's unemployment numbers or a victory on the wednesday night debate. >>chris: you would rather have the big victory in the debate. people will pay attention to the jobs numbers but not 67 million people watching for an hour and a half. the debate was more important. but this is a good boost for obama especially when he needed it. think where we would be if he had the debate and the unemployment rate went up .3 percent rather than down .3 percent. there is symbolic performance. a big republican talking points for months has been unemployment has been up over 8 percent for 43 months. now republicans and romney cannot say that. >>trace: back to the debate if i and the 67 million viewers. this were new numbers in a poll, and people criticize rasmussen as leaning to the right but it shows in ohio obama's lead has russia returning from three days ago to 50-49, and in florida, the same thing, romney now on top, 49-47. finally, virginia, you have romney also on t
